Description In the original watercolour painting a goat and two kids sit in the grass in front of an old timber farm house which is partly in the shadow of a cloud. The front windows reflect the distant light of the sky. There is an overall atmospheric effect and the dominant hue is green.The watercolour is painted on a heavy coarse textured hand made watercolour paper.You will need to click on the image to bring up the enlaged version to more appreciate the fine art quality of the work,The original is quite small 10X14 inches but would look quite well at considerably larger reproduction.
David Bleakley, Sunshine Coast Member Since November 2007 Artist Statement I am an Artist and Photographer who likes to experiment in many media including acrylics oils graphics etching and digital art.
I attend life drawing most weeks and have become a more active artist since retiring 5 years ago after 30 years as a Specialist Surgeon. --------
Art was always my passion but until these retirement years it was pushed into the background.My involvement in Surgery and Anatomy perhaps explains to some extent my bias towards the Human Figure, drawing and representational art but on the other hand not many surgeons have any artistic aptitude at all! -----
I lived in Papua New Guinea while training in surgery and regard this time as the most exciting and significant of my life. Every day was rich in experience.PNG was also rich in traditional culture with over 600 different language groups and endless material to stimulate the artistic appetite.
